TERROR ALERT: Arabic graffiti daubed on easyJet planes at French airports

12 hours 42 min ago
Express [UK], by Tom Parfitt Posted By: Pluperfect- Sat, 28 06 2015 01:06:05 GMT The graffiti was found covering fuel tanks of four easyJet planes at airports which cannot be named for security reasons. The probe comes two weeks after 130 people were killed by twisted Islamic State terrorists in co'ordinated attacks across Paris. Airports in the capital have tightened security since the horrific shootings and bombings amid fears of follow'up attacks. Airline security expert Philip Baum said: "Graffiti in itself won´t hurt anybody. "But the ability of anyone to place a prohibited item near fuel tanks is a concern, of course." He added: "We know there are people working in restricted areas of

Abortion industry trade group blames videos for Colorado Springs shooting before any facts are known

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson Posted By: magnante- Sat, 28 57 2015 12:57:37 GMT The abortion industry isn’t waiting for any facts in its rush to blame the shooting in Colorado Springs on the videos released showing Planned Parenthood officials chortling over how much money they can make selling baby parts. In a statement released and emailed to news outlets just after 9 PM yesterday, Vicki Saporta, President and CEO of the National Abortion Federation wrote (in part): Since a series of highly'edited, misleading anti'abortion videos was released in July, we have seen an unprecedented increase in hate speech and threats against abortion providers. We have been quite worried that this increase in threats would

Marco Rubio: Another charming young man

Canada Free Press, by Elvira Fernandez Hasty Posted By: tisHimself- Sat, 28 30 2015 12:30:33 GMT Most Americans believe our country is going on the wrong direction, as shown by the latest polls (NBC/WSJ 64% and USC/LA Times 70%). We are facing the near total transformation promised by President Barack Hussein Obama, one that has taken the USA from an exceptional world power to a lawless corrupt nation and a joke among world leaders. Our national debt is near $20 trillion. About 94 million Americans are out of the labor force. Our borders are not secured while sanctuary cities protect foreign criminals. Our policemen are being demonized. Our Judeo/Christian values are being persecuted and humiliated. Our

Columbia Daily Tribune, by Staff Posted By: mean Gene- Sat, 28 54 2015 04:54:46 GMT Columbia police on Wednesday arrested a 53'year'old man who allegedly pulled a teenage family member out of Hickman High School by her hair and slapped her. Police re'sponded at 3 p.m. Tuesday to the school, 1104 N. Providence Road, for a child abuse call, Officer Latisha Stroer said in an email. Youssif Z. Omar was at the school and noticed a 14'year'old female family member was not wearing a hijab, a traditional headscarf that some Muslim women wear. Omar became irate, Stroer said, grabbed the girl “very violently by the hair” and pulled her outside and down a flight of stairs.

Tyshawn Lee and Laquan McDonald

Power Line, by John Hinderaker Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 59 2015 09:59:55 GMT In October 2014, Laquan McDonald, 17 years old and high on PCP, broke into a series of vehicles in a trucking yard. He then walked into the middle of a busy street, where he proceeded for some distance, followed by two policemen. The usual mantra, “unarmed black teenager,” is not used with respect to McDonald because he was carrying a knife, which he used to slash the tire of a squad car. He refused police officers’ orders to surrender and ultimately was shot by a policemen who arrived later on the scene. If you watch the dash cam video that

Obama’s ‘Spiritual Advisor’ Fr. Pfleger Shuts Down Chicago’s Mag Mile on Black Friday

12 hours 59 min ago
Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 28 59 2015 09:59:12 GMT Sen. Barack Obama told the Chicago Sun'Times in 2004 that he had three spiritual advisers: radical Jeremiah Wright, radical James Meeks, and radical Father Michael Pfleger. But, radical Father Pfleger was more than a spiritual guide for Obama. They also held protests together. (Photo) State Sen. Barack Obama and Fr. Michael Pfleger led a protest against the payday loan industry demanding the State of Illinois to regulate loan businesses in January 2000.

The Two Lives of Michael Jackson

12 hours 59 min ago
The New Yorker, by Carvell Wallace Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 58 2015 09:58:33 GMT Do me a favor. Go on YouTube and find the footage of Michael Jackson singing “Who’s Lovin’ You” on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” He is eleven years old. It is one of his first times on national television. In the intro, he looks and sounds like . . . well, like an eleven'year'old with a decent ability to ham it up. He does a jokey spoken preamble about how kids can understand the blues, too, because he once fell in love with a girl in the sandbox, toasted their love during “milk break,” and broke up during finger painting. Halfway

Chicago Deserves Riots Over The Laquan McDonald Shooting And Coverup

13 hours 16 min ago
The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski Posted By: Pluperfect- Sat, 28 53 2015 09:53:59 GMT Chicago is bracing for riots after the release of a video of a black teenager, 17'year'old Laquan McDonald, being shot 16 times by a Chicago police officer. And you know what? I have a lot of sympathy for the protesters’ grievances. If any city government deserves to be torn down brick'by'brick over its contempt for the rights and well'being of the majority of its subjects, it’s Chicago’s Democratic Machine. It’s always a good idea not to jump to conclusions about supposedly “racist” shootings by cops, to treat both sides with skepticism until all the evidence comes in. I’ve set out a few

Obama’s Moral Hypocrisy on the Syrian'Refugee Question Is Astounding

13 hours 32 min ago
Washington Post Writers Group, by Charles Krauthammer Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 49 2015 09:49:47 GMT The Syrian'refugee debate has become a national embarrassment. It begins with a president, desperate to deflect attention from the collapse of his foreign policy, retreating to his one safe zone — ad hominem attacks on critics, this time for lack of compassion toward Syrian widows and orphans. This, without a glimmer of acknowledgment of his own responsibility for these unfortunate souls becoming widowed and orphaned, displaced and homeless, in the first place. A quarter'million deaths ago, when Bashar al'Assad began making war on his own people, he unleashed his air force and helicopters. They dropped high explosives, nail'filled barrel bombs,

The Syrian Refugee Program Has the Hallmarks of the Obama Style

13 hours 32 min ago
American Thinker, by James V. DeLong Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 28 48 2015 09:48:52 GMT President Obama’s directive that the U.S. admit 10,000 Syrian refugees as a humanitarian measure has many hallmarks of his governing style: it lacks a proper legal basis; it will harm rather than help its purported beneficiaries; it will undermine important American interests; and it is designed to signal virtue rather than accomplish anything. As to the legal basis of the directive, U.S. immigration law is specific. To enter the U.S. as a refugee, one must have a “well'founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.” The program is not

Washington Free Beacon, by Aaron MacLean Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 46 2015 09:46:17 GMT Sure, a glance at the headlines may indicate that the global order is in collapse—but life goes on, and with it, the pleasant duty to purchase holiday gifts. When it comes to buying something for the readers in your life, the Washington Free Beacon’s culture pages have you covered. For loved ones who live, eat, and breathe politics, publishers have supplied more than adequate provisions in 2015. If you know someone who might like some forward'looking takes on the condition of the conservative movement, consider getting them Arthur Brooks’ new argument for a kind of compassionate conservatism, or this manifesto on

Black Pastors To Trump: Our Meeting Is Not An Endorsement

14 hours 7 min ago
Daily Beast, by Patricia Murphy Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 41 2015 09:41:51 GMT When a group of black pastors agreed to meet with Trump on Monday, they did not anticipate that meeting would turn into a de facto endorsement of the Republican frontrunner. Several members of a group of prominent African American ministers scheduled to meet with Donald Trump Monday are making clear that they have made no commitments to endorse the real estate magnate. Their public declarations of non'endorsement come after a press release from the Trump campaign announced a coalition of 100 African American religious leaders will appear with the real estate mogul shortly after the meeting to endorse him.

NOAA’s climate change science fiction

14 hours 24 min ago
Washington Times, by Lamar Smith Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 36 2015 09:36:46 GMT The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the nation’s leading collector of climate data. Every day, NOAA analyzes vast amounts of data to predict changes to our climate, weather, oceans and coasts. The agency also publishes monthly temperature averages across the nation and compares those numbers to historical temperature records. As the nation’s self'proclaimed authority on “environmental intelligence,” NOAA should be held to the highest scientific standards. This means their conclusions should be objective, independent of political consideration and based on all available sources of information. NOAA’s top official, Kathryn Sullivan, has described the agency’s role as providing “timely,

POLL: Donald Trump´s support just took a big hit in less than a week

14 hours 41 min ago
Reuters, by Alana Wise Posted By: MissMolly- Sat, 28 33 2015 09:33:13 GMT WASHINGTON ' U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump´s support among Republicans has dropped 12 points in less than a week, marking the real estate mogul´s biggest decline since he vaulted to the top of the field in July, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Trump was the favorite of 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling poll in the five days ended on Nov. 27. That was down from a peak of 43 percent registered on Nov. 22. The dip follows criticism of Trump for comments he made in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds

Tighter Lid on Records Threatens to Weaken Government Watchdogs

14 hours 41 min ago
New York Times, by Eric Lichtblau Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 25 2015 09:25:59 GMT WASHINGTON — Justice Department watchdogs ran into an unexpected roadblock last year when they began examining the role of federal drug agents in the fatal shootings of unarmed civilians during raids in Honduras. The Drug Enforcement Administration balked at turning over emails from senior officials tied to the raids, according to the department’s inspector general. It took nearly a year of wrangling before the D.E.A. was willing to turn over all its records in a case that the inspector general said raised “serious questions” about agents’ use of deadly force. The continuing Honduran inquiry is one of at least 20 investigations across

What to do with you Thanksgiving turkey carcass: Give it to Michael Dukakis so he can make gallons and gallons of soup

14 hours 58 min ago
New York Daily News, by Meg Wagner Posted By: MissMolly- Sat, 28 22 2015 09:22:45 GMT Michael Dukakis is so eager to get his hands on some turkey carcasses, he gave out his home address. The thrifty former Massachusetts governor collects leftovers every Thanksgiving so he can make turkey soup all year long — and this year, he made his poultry plea public. “I’m collecting, if you know anybody,” the 82'year'old told the Boston Globe. “Tell them to come to 85 Perry Street in Brookline. We’ll make full use of it, believe me.” Dukakis is so obsessive about his carcasses, he lugs them home whenever he has Thanksgiving away from his Brookline house. The scraps usually ride in the

What Will the Nixon'Reagan'Bush Republicans Do?

15 hours 15 min ago
Weekly Standard, by William Kristol Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 17 2015 09:17:34 GMT How unusual is this year´s GOP presidential race? Consider this: Here´s roster of the eleven men who´ve won Republican presidential nominations going back to 1944: Mitt Romney, John McCain, George W. Bush, Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Barry Goldwater, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Tom Dewey. Seven had previously run for the nomination before winning. Almost all were nominated after substantial time in public office or the public limelight; the two who might be considered exceptions (George W. Bush, who had only six years in office, and Mitt Romney, who had only four) were the sons

The tragedy of the ‘jihadi brides’

15 hours 32 min ago
New York Post, by Editorial Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 14 2015 09:14:27 GMT Austrian teen Samra Kesinovic has paid the ultimate price after fleeing home last year to become a “poster girl” for ISIS. The Bosnian'born Kesinovic left Austria with her friend, Sabina Selimovic. Sabina reportedly was killed in Syrian fighting last year — and now Samra has been beaten to death for trying to escape a horrible life of forced marriage and rape. Her death was confirmed this week by a Tunisian woman who had been living with her. It was already a tragedy last April, when the two girls left a note for their parents: “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah, and

Who’s really protesting Walmart?

16 hours 6 min ago
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 28 01 2015 09:01:52 GMT Tis the season, once again upon us, when an age old tradition returns to cities and towns across the nation. I don’t mean the usual Thanksgiving feasts of yesterday or even the commercial mayhem of Black Friday. We’re talking about the annual protests of Walmart by their beleaguered workers who want a fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage and, much more to the point, official union representation. The OurWalmart campaign was back at it as usual, preparing to disrupt holiday shopping plans for the masses who prepare to launch into the Christmas giving season. But who are these protesters, really?

Young hunter gets one of a kind experience with his first hunt

16 hours 22 min ago
WBAY [Green Bay, WI], by Clare Kayley Posted By: Pluperfect- Sat, 28 58 2015 08:58:02 GMT Every hunter remembers their first buck and the story of how they got it. But one area 10'year'old may have one of the rarest experiences we’ve reported over the years. “I wanted to go hunting this year because I really wanted a deer,” said 10'year'old Kyler Verbeten. Kyler went out hunting Sunday with his dad, with his gun for the first time. “This squirrel kept distracting me, so I kept watching the squirrel,” said Kyler. “The squirrel was just jumping from tree to tree, everything. It was just doing weird stuff.” Kyler and his dad eventually saw two deer in the woods. “I said, shoot
